Championship walleye anglers love their Ranger Boats. On Saturday and Sunday, the 27th and 28th of October, during the National Guard FLW Walleye Championship, Quad Cities and surrounding area folks are invited to TESTRIDE a new Ranger boat powered by Evinrude outboard engines on the Mississippi River. Learn all about the special features from professional anglers that know what makes these boats and motors a key part of their success on the water. Starting at 10 a.m. each day, ending at 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, a variety of models from Ranger’s Fisherman series, Angler series, Reatas and Z-Series will be available with various outboards from Evinrude. Even the exciting new 175 Tiller will be showcased along with 45th Anniversary 2013 products. Free TESTRIDE t-shirts and Rapala goodies along with $1500 in purchase incentives, it’s all part of the TESTRIDE experience.
“We’re closing TESTRIDE out this fall with a lot of buzz,” shared George Liddle, Ranger Boats rep and host of TESTRIDE. “The on-the-water platform for our multi-species big water boats and bass boats has been awesome all year. The enthusiasm for the 175 tiller has been over the top.” The October 27/28 TESTRIDE event in the Quad Cities is the last event in the 2012 season. “We encourage folks that are in the market for a new boat, whether they have a Ranger in their consideration set or not, to come out while these boats are on the water. Anyone on the fence should come take a ride. Minn Kota trolling motors as well as Talon shallow-anchoring systems and Rapala lures round out the product demonstrations,” continued Liddle.
The Ranger Boats dealer in the area, Bob’s Marine of Bellevue, Iowa, has special sale pricing on all boat models along with a $1500 incentive for TESTRIDE participants good for the next 60 days. “You’ll get a first-hand experience of the stability and comfort in a Ranger Boat,” shared Iowa dealer Bob Hutchcroft. “Learn how well they all handle on the river.”
“Customers feel the power of an E-TEC engine first hand and learn about reliability and superior design from the pro anglers that depend on them,” shared Krista Heidgerken of Evinrude Outboards. “In many cases that wins them over.” Evinrude will exhibit at the National Guard FLW Walleye Tour Expo as well.
“The new 2013 boats are coming out and there’s lots to talk about, especially about Ranger Boats’ 45th Anniversary,” added Bart Schad, Ranger Boats Vice President of Marketing. The 1850LS Reata and the Z-Series 520C 45th Anniversary Editions will be on display at the EXPO. “This is a great opportunity for folks to see these Anniversary Edition Ranger Boats—they’re really quite amazing.” Ranger Boats will showcase additional boats at the Expo as well. “Ranger Boats is committed to providing the ultimate ownership experience—and has been for 45 years now. These events help us show the real differences that make up so much of our legendary ride,” concluded Schad.
